The Hampshire police said that the Embraer Phenom 300 Executive jet had crashed into a parking lot and burst into flames while trying to land at Blackbushe Airport in southern England on Friday afternoon. Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Britain Prince Mohammed Bin Nawaf Bin Abdel-Aziz offered his condolences to the wealthy bin Laden family, which owns a major construction company in Saudi Arabia. The message on the official twitter handle of the Saudi embassy read: “The embassy will follow up on the incident and its circumstances with the concerned British authorities and work on speeding up the handover of the bodies of the victims to the kingdom for prayer and burial,” 
The bin Laden family disowned Osama in 1994 when Saudi Arabia stripped him of his citizenship because of his militant activities. The family is a large and wealthy one. Osama bin Laden’s billionaire father Mohammed had more than 50 children and founded the Binladen Group, a sprawling construction conglomerate awarded many major building contracts in the Sunni kingdom.
Mohammed bin Laden died in a plane crash in Saudi Arabia in 1967. One of his sons, Salem, was also killed when his ultralight aircraft flew into power lines in San Antonio, Texas, in 1988.
